Micromax, the leading Indian mobile handset manufacturer announced the launch of Micromax C350, the first Indian OMH (Open Market Handset) compliant CDMA2000 phone was launched in Hong Kong.
The company said this was the first time that an Indian company has developed such a phone. OMH technology allows customers to buy a CDMA2000 handset and relevant SIM cards from any operator of their choice.
